Documentation

Requirements
  • Yii 1.0.4/1.1.x or above
Installation

Since version 0.9

  • Extract the zip file under 'proctected/extensions'
  • Add the following to your 'config/main.php':
// application components
	'components'=>array(
                 ....
	    'clientScript'=>array(
			'class'=>'ext.ExtendedClientScript.ExtendedClientScript',
			'combineCss'=>true,
			'compressCss'=>true,
			'combineJs'=>true,
			'compressJs'=>true,
		),

And you're set!

For more options see the comments in the file. To mention a few:

  • excludeFiles: array with files not to be combined/compressed. Handy for some rarely used JS/CSS files.
  • autoRefresh: If false, no check on filemtime() to speed up a bit more. Useful in production.
